The article provides characteristics of seven new isolates of monoxenous trypanosomatid Crithidia brevicula, which were isolated from the hindgut of Brachyceran flies in the northern regions of Russia. Comparison of the SSU rRNA gene sequences and subsequent phylogenetic analysis based on this marker have demonstrated that new isolates form a reliable cluster with other isolates of C. brevicula from Hemipteran and Nematoceran insects.
Key words: Brachycera, Crithidia brevicula, Diptera, geographical distribution, host range, phylogeny, Trypanosomatidae
